... aka this isn't all that well thought out, but I don't care because MaruDa is turning 30, and I want to love them a little more.


credit


Technically this is also a little late, and I really won't mind if any and all activity carries past October 4th.

To celebrate the wonderful thing that is the bond of one Nakamaru Yuichi and Ueda Tatsuya, who have been giving us joy and shipping material for years now, I challenge you!

Comment to this post and spam pictures, give me your feelings, write fics, post fic ideas and prompts, answer those prompts, share your doujinshi, look for couple clothes, share conspiratorial theories, flail and cry on my shoulder because Ueda and Nakamaru will both be 30 in a month and they still look younger than you, give me reasons why I (I mean everyone) should ship them (more), invite your friends, have a party!

Anything goes, this post stays public, let's have fun! Let's have an awesome MaruDa month. (The idea was not mine, but I sure hope Levy and Seki forgive me for stealing it).

I promise to make a master post of things in comments so people do not have to look for it.

Need a little incentive?

Maruda and dress shirts, and ties, and more ties (and you know other polka dot men apparel), and in leather jackets, and Ueda making Nakamaru's PV that much better, and Nakamaru telling you who really uses the whip in this relationship. And have MaruDa reminding you just how long they have been the perfection they are. Even if their radio made of awesome (and the related regular couple shoots) is no longer.

Have MaruDa
serenading you because of course Nakamaru takes Ueda with him to his SCP performance.

Enjoy them pimping each other's acting work in an interview or watch them discuss hairstyles like it's serious business.

And top it off with some lovely meta that makes you melt.

Now it's your turn, I will encourage all and every notion of affection. Spread the word, have some fun.



Shiny things to be found in comments:
Art:
Suits and ties (with a little written bonus)
another collection of fanart, omg so much awesome

Writings:
Chiffon
Don't Make Me Come Back There. I Beg You
AutoCorrect Refresh

Threads where you can request something to be written do you by a specific author:
Levy's drabble thread
Alex' prompt me thread
Ri's "find-me-something-i-want-to-write" request thread
!You can always leave random prompts and story ideas, things you have always wanted to see written about them in general comments and maybe some good fairy will pick it up. This is not limited to requesting from people who specifically offered to write. And of course you can pick any of the prompts and write something for it too ....

Translations:

Fic games 2012 ended.

I can't say I regret running it, but I must say it wasn't as much fun as it could have been. But Jess, my awesome co-mod, not only took so much off my hands when my real life became extremely busy, she also saved the official Fic Games community from me expressing some of my ... discomforts, lol. Anyway, this is not the post where I'll voice them either because I'm in no mood to recreate that again right now. But maybe one day I will. Because really, I feel like some things should be said even if they make me sound pressed, might feel uncomfortable to someone or make me the bad guy.

ANYWAY, there was an idea to post top individual fics from this year. Not to post all scores, I don't want to put anyone on spot, but just some. If someone did the work, this info is public, which is why I feel it is okay to do this. We just did the math for you since we had to.

So I am listing the top 5 fics according to overall scores. Before I do, a few remarks.
- scores are overall once; it seems LJ no longer provides you with things like average and median when you close the poll (this could have been see in the previous years of Fic Games, but I either need a special code for this which I do not know or LJ changed their polls functioning).

- thus essentially, these might not be the fics that had the BEST ranking, but the ones with most votes. On the other hand, I believe lots of people do not vote instead of giving low points, so it is a bit telling (the best scoring fic was KAT-TUN gen!!!), but then, e.g. akame is not half as read as it used to be - more like shunned, so it is only natural that there won't be as many voters.

- the points of team mates are not counted in; there were few people who voted on fics of their own teams but in accordance with the rules, these votes were not taken into account.

cut for the kick ass table )

There are things to learn from these polls. Not all AU is AU enough. People will vote on certain fics but will not comment on them (more than on others). Gen is loved a lot. People who don't write are stricter voters than writers themselves. This year, it was much less about the category and much more about the fics themselves...

These are generalizations, but the creeper I am, it was interesting to see the polls evolve (even if LJ did stupid stuff like allow people to check two scores for one question despite the fact it should not be possible with this type of poll, lol).

So I hope this was fun for someone else than me, and I do not sound too creepy.

I am out of fun facts for the moment. Your thoughts and observations?

HELP?!

SO, as I have already mentioned, Je Fic Games are happening again this year. Here have the link to the big announcement post.

I have a question for you all. We need to think of a theme/prompts for this year and there was the idea of using famous JE quotes. And the perfect example of “What’s wrong with being naked?“

But I am really bad at these things, so the first thing to do is to ask the f-list. Any ideas what else could be used? More quotes from our lovely boys?

In rl news, I have moved, everything went wrong, and I am doing all the things at the same time. I have no clue why I am starting yet another fandom event right now ;__;

Also one more RL question: For some reason, this place attracts little insect like crazy. I have never seen this, not even in mother nature so to speak. I´m using Reid (repellent put into an electric socket) for inside, but all it does is to kill all these tiny, tiny flies and some mosquitoes until the morning. But this means I wake up to my floor covered in little flies. I could vacuum clean every day, and it spreads everywhere. IDK what to do. Any ideas? I need to google if there isn’t a herb that repels them or something so they don’t even want to fly in, but until then . . . suggestion?
higure: ((Junjo) egoist)

Devil or Angel.

Now posting!


I've had like a long plead/rant ready in my head about how and why people should comment, but then few people were actually awesome enough to do so, so I calmed down.

Anyway still, please if you read (and actually finish) a fic, it probably already means it is good on some level because these are not short by far. Please do leave a comment then.

Just. Help me make the posting phase of this challenge as enjoyable as the writing (hopefully) was for the authors. The community being alive and people actually reading and flailing over the things authors plotted together is a big part of the challenge being fun and worth running. ♥

In other news. I am crazy. I have managed to get in contact with the mods of [livejournal.com profile] je_ficgames, and I want to run it again. I'm recruiting a comod though because running Fic games is not the least complicated thing out there, and it is time consuming at moments (team communities, prompt claiming, more coding during posting ...). I can't do this alone. I was also looking at the schedule and the one possibility I like the most clashes with my vacation (and no Internet) time, so I really do need help. Anyone interested?

That is all for today. Life updates when life stops being too time demanding ;D
higure: ((KAT-TUN) Ueda waaaaaaaaaaaa!)
I'm not sure if one can call it hiatus if it never gets better. But I'm sorry if I'm not the best of friends lately. Life's been kind of mean to me, stealing even my weekends and dragging me around Czech republic and Slovakia too much and if not that, then I am touring furniture and kitchen studios and such.

THIS is the only thing that has made me stop so I am embeding it.



I WILL REPLY TO ALL THE THINGS IN . . . two weeks. Maybe, hopefully. Come to think of it, I might not have that weekend free either >.>

Also, do you know of a good Czech lawyer who will teach me for free? I am kind of desperate for a sempai..
higure: (Ryoda silver)
I should be doing (and posting) other things, but well . . . it's always the random stuff.

I REALLY REALLY WANT THE REMIX OF MY Tangles of what is left behind. I want the ryoda side of the story. SO BAD!!!

lol okay, thought process:

This rumor surfaced and made me laugh a lot:
Akanishi Jin plans to have an open bar, live in Okinawa and quit the entertainment industry [source]

All I can think of is how I've written that. Only not because it's not Hawaii and not a hotel and Jin has a wife in RL. STILL! I see parallels. But what I really want is the Ryoda in that story anyway. Now I just keep thinking about it (again).

Let's not talk about all the other things my brain came up with when reading that rumor (Mesia earning all the money - because taiga dorama next year, Jin on paternity leave, not wearing underwear ever again (effective birth control I hear) . . . )

Also I love Junno a lot (re his 10 000 words interview) and I handed in my FQF today with the lamest name ever.

Off to do the important stuff. ♥

EDIT: UEDA HAS A NEW DORAMA WHERE MARUYAMA IS THE MAIN CHARACTER (I MEAN MARUYAMA. OF KANJANI8. HE IS AWESOME AND HEY K8 KATTUN CONNECTION *_______________*) UEDA IS PLAYING A BOXER

/ALEX JUST DIED

HERE HAVE A LINK
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
This is the last thing I should be posting.

Rules: List 1-10 pairings/prompts that you have been dying to read. Maybe it's a really rare pairing or something you've requested on any of the past smut memes which haven't been fulfilled. When you see this posted on your friends' journals, you may do one of the following:

- Write it.
- Link to one that's already been written, whether by you or someone else.
- Nothing, but karma will get you. >_>

There are no length or rating limits, and prompts may be duplicated (PLEASE). Be specific in your prompts particularly in reference to preferred smut content, seme/uke order, and any other requirements that may hinder your appreciation of the fic.

There is no deadline for this, but once your ten prompts have been written to your satisfaction you are welcome to make a new post starting over. You may write your own prompts if you want. If your tastes change, you can certainly switch out one prompt for another at any time.

My Wish List I think no one's going to be surprised by the RyoDa representation >.> )

Other wish lists I stumbled upon:
luna_truths
peroxidepest17
tinyangl
ryogrande
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
thumbsupSo, almost everything on my to-do-list is done and I think I can start stressing over the apartment issues tomorrow. I hope so.

OKFTF posted reveals. No one attempted to guess what I wrote ;__; It's a shame that it's such a "no once cares" thing because I would have liked to know how ninja or not I was this year. (Since normally I am very transparent). My recipient didn't guess me though, so yay :D

arrowroundAnyway since FTF ended, DOA is of course starting. Pimping goes here.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.


._.;;I have a favor to ask regarding the Lyrics theme explained in the intro post. ATM I have around 30 lines from different JE lyrics, but I definitely need more.

pencilWhat I need is concrete parts of songs, that are either funny, substantial, famous for one thing or another. Like the Giri Giri part from Real Face or Omoide zutto zutto part of Love So Sweet, of course with English translation.

This is how it will look like on the actual list from which people will choose:
Kanjani8 - Misetekure: Sono karada mo Sono kokoro mo Subete boku ni misete kure (That body, that heart, show it all to me)
KAT-TUN - Love Yourself: Kimi ga kirai na kimi ga suki (I like the you that you hate)

paperclipIt can be just few words, or a longer sentence or two, but I obviously miss stuff from groups I don't really know, Kisumai, HSJ, SMAP, Tokio . . . but in general, anything that comes to your mind is fine, even famous misheard lyrics, I can always weed out the ones that I want, right?

rainHelp! I want as many choices as possible. *puppy eyes*

shockuLastly, does anyone want to write with me? I'll be a bit harder to write with this year, we'd have to start only after May 10th when I come back from Japan, and most of my writing happens on weekends these days, but I do want to participate . . .

I think this is all I have for tonight, I'm now off to fulfill the "relax" part of my to do list

higure: ((Arashi) Jun classy)
loveletter I've started the full inbox project, so let's hope I have inspiration enough to write to 7 people for a week :D

footprint I might have [livejournal.com profile] parasol_odori next week. Excite!

! Today marks two finally:

pencil I finally posted the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan fic, and I am so, so, so happy. I can now move on and concentrate on hols. We'll see how that goes.

camera1 And I finally posted the pictures I mentioned some time ago. It's the collection from the time I took a walk up to the castle. Click on the picture bellow to see the rest. Any of them can be seen in the original size when you right click on them, idek maybe some of the ones with views could have been bigger.


cloverHave a nice week!
higure: ((Kat-tun) Ueda ruffled)
I just felt like coming out of my hole for this.



Now excuse me while I go back to my corner thinking very, very dirty and inappropriate and cheesy thoughts.
higure: ((Kat-tun) Kame chair)
So I'm just going to beg here, since I failed at this project being a secret a long time ago.

The fic I mentioned yesterday is done. It's over 20 000 words, so it is a complete monster. I can't ever publish this without a proper beta, but yeah, I have no clue where to find one for such a long thing. Help? I'd offer a newborn, but I believe it's already taken by someone who beta read for me before. Just like most of my internal organs.

Help? If you know of anyone I could beg, that would help too.
higure: ((Dorama) Akira shock!)
eyesSO . . . I've gone a bit away so to speak after I had a bit of a fight with real life, to put it metaphorically, last Friday. Or hormones, I'm still not sure. I stayed a bit away from about everything.

shockuJust as I was slowly coming back, NEWS happened. Well that's that. I always thought fandom was there to amuse me. Or not fandom, the boys are here to amuse me in one way or another. So I don't know why JE goes out of their way to screw over just about everything I like about it lately. You are not doing a good job at keeping me around, orz.

thumbsupAnyway, I am still a bit distanced, I would say, but I was pretty productive yesterday, and even if the result will always stay dubious, I am proud of myself just because I finished it.

movieAs a reward I went on a search for a certain .gif. I didn't find it, so I made it. I don't know how to make .gifs mind you. I had to install one more program and read like three tutorials, so it probably sucks but it makes me happy.



heartyeyesYeah, my favorite Zenkai Girl moment. And one of my favorite J drama moments ever too. Because TOUCHES *_____* I was going to write this whole thing on touches and why I like this one and why I like touches in fic too and stuff, but somehow, the need to talk about it is gone. So that's that.

NGI seriously hope I didn't spoiler anyone by now.

camera1Oh also, I had to look for some MatsuJun pics today and when did the guy get this pretty? I found some of his phases very (there I said it) charming but this . . . Also have Ueda Tatsuya picture-a-month mosaic from the year 2000 up till now-days (click the picture to make it bigger ;D ).

houseI'm home and am driving to Prague only on Tuesday evening so I won't be around even as much as I normally am. I just felt like letting you know ;D
higure: ((Kat-tun) Ueda red)
watchI think this all is enough for a quick (mostly) fandom post



heartyeyesSo let's talk about how Ueda's hair finally matches his hunched, very macho and MALE posture. He tends to stand exactly like that, but call me an idiot, it looks sooooooooooo good like this. With every new (and more in color) picture, I like bouzu Pommu more and more. Not to mention, I really like it when an idol goes and does something that challenges his image and public perception of him up to that point. And yeah I can't stop looking. (See also: Nakamaru with rolled up sleeves and from that angle looks amazing).

melody2The PV for Kaze Wa Fuiteiru is out, and it is official, it's the second AKB48 song I really like (I don't really know any old stuff, but I heard everything after Beginner and some). Plus I like the darker setting of the PV. This is also probably the first time Itano Tomomi didn't bother me (I really do not like her face, sorry to anyone who does).

presentOh yeah, today I got my [livejournal.com profile] rocky_rudolph mod hat back on. My sister is still Internet-less (though she sends me MMS about toilets, bikes, sea horses and killing unicorns), so whenever she gets the sorted out assignments to me, I will have to send 46 emails. LOL my weekend is doomed. What with the evening get together turning more into like all day get together on Saturday and two fics to write before October 13 and other stuff.

moneybagIn real life news, I just paid my rent. It is sad how I always feel SO broke afterward. For half of the month, I am all, you are doing well, saving up, being all responsible, it is looking good. And then BAM! LE SIGH! I just needed to get that off my chest.

arrowupTomorrow is the last day of my 3-months probation period at work. My boss isn't even in the office due to some injury to lay me off from one day to another on last minute, so I am pretty sure I am staying in Prague for at least another 3 months until the end of my short term contract. Then I either become jobless right after Christmas, or I am in for a permanent one *____* Will gambarimasu for that magical formula of "for an indefinite period" to be added in.
higure: ((NEWS) Shige profile)
eyesMy head’s been hurting so much all day, but I was so set to post that I just had to. If this makes next to no sense because of the headache, then I apologize.

glassesSo The Anti-friending meme. Ever since I first got the idea presented to me, all I could think of was ruffled feathers. I know it was one of the things that could do that. Ruffle feathers that is. I am sorry if it felt like too much, too negative and completely unnecessary, and I hope you forgive me my extravagant moment of hosting it anyway.

NGMy other concern with it was that it could turn to flat out hate meme. But people were pretty good with it, other than occasional efforts of trying too hard to make their point and failing at recognizing when it is better to stop. Then the meme got killed by a true hate meme (I has impeccable timing), so maybe that is a reason why people were rather civil too. Thank god for that because I almost did not sleep that night, afraid of letting it go unattended. In a way, this too is a conclusion, fandom can handle itself on occasions.

thumbsupThe whole thing was rather interesting. I’m sure I had more conclusions, but by now, the following three stuck in my mind, so here you go:pairings, coherence and connectivity )

heartyeyesAnyway, personal result of the meme. I suppose I have always known that being RyoDa fangirl means people are cautious of friending you. But lately I have had such a steady and nice friend list that I almost forgot. The meme reminded me that RyoDa fangirls are considered crazy and more thread than an asset to one's friends list. Therefor I now love you even more for giving me a try and tolerating my crazy. I know my mind can get very one-track sometimes when it comes to my OTP, but I hope I do not annoy you with it too much.

flowerAfter that very serious fandom analysis (LOL, fandom is serious business), have my Saturday night joy. I spent my Saturday at work, but took a walk on my way home and got myself something to liven up my kitchen. With the choice I made, it seems fall is really coming.



4leafcloverIt is a pretty fall though! The weather forecast for the next two weeks is sunny and still around 20 °C or only a little less so this is great *____________* I took a walk up to the castle today after work, so I need to sort and post those pictures sometimes. It was rather pretty.

planeAnd lastly, my sister, [livejournal.com profile] chivakaza is safely in Japan, probably sleeping more than 24 hours of travel and official business away. I am relieved, she seemed to have handled it like a boss and now she has an amazing year ahead of her. (LOL she also sent her friends to my journal to find out if the plane did not crush and since she might not have the internet for a while, I figured I'd leave this public so that curious people not willing to wait 5 months before getting worried know she is fine and safe)

LOL nothing else is relevant


Or well maybe.

camera1Meet element of fire. She was the best of them. Had a really great "insane" stare down and fascinated me a bit. Or a lot.

Also today, exactly a year ago, September 17th, I graduated from university. LOL 1 year anniversary of adult life, what? Clearly, right afterwards I was pretty out of it and couldn't type to safe my life. And later, I was full of impressions. So much has happened since (and changed). At least clearly, Ueda still can get the raise out of me. I don't remember capslocking like this in ever.

There's a friending meme going on, so hi new friends. I am sorry for jumping straight into a crazy. This might be the most of capslock you'll see from me . . . in next year or so <3!!cake

I’ve been piling up fandom stuff I wanted to flail or just talk about, and now it is all old news and there might be too much.

lovely I really like Kinki Kid’s Time. I am not sure why because it sounds a bit "electro" to me, but I guess it has something with all the instrumental in the background.

moviecamera KAT-TUN's 156th CM song is making me cringe because there’s tons of auto-tune, but I love the running in the CM itself. Like any other fangirl I supposed. There have been .gifs of Nakamaru and Ueda that made me go *___*, but now they are gone ;__; If you have them, please please link me?

shirtWhite shirt is what makes man look great. AnAn knows this. That I like this picture of Ryo is not that surprising. That I like Kame in this one is more of a shock. Turtle-chan also scared me to death recently because I was subjected to a .gif of him rolling up his sleeves (wearing trousers and tucked in WHITE shirt) and I found him HOT. I should probably be thankful for the loss of that .gif.

pencilI love this interview. Ueda is on a fan service strike clearly. The mentions of Nakamaru and Kanjani8 are great. Not to mention him saying K8 was fun made me think he had loads of fun ogling Ryo’s ass during Marching J. I have linked that picture before, but I can do it again ;D.

penI was going to pimp the possibility of mini-reel that is now a reality. Claim post is this way. I fail, lol.

cakeOh and then there is loads of Junba. There is this amazing bar shoot and then there are VS Arashi "kissing" caps and WHOA Jun looks great, Aiba is as gorgeous as ever and they are the biggest teases ever.

watchI had more, but the second post it got lost. But I went on tumblr again, so this is the newest addition to my Subaru/Ryo obsession, here goes KAT-TUN garden party I want to join for the pretty and there is Nakamaru working his lips?

shocku I am sorry, I am not crediting, but I mostly have no idea who. People link pictures, I try to track them down when I can save them, it's all a huge mess >.>

japaneseteaI am out. I leave you with an office rule number one:

There is 15!!!! teams signed-up for [livejournal.com profile] je_devilorangel. This is not why I am posting, but I figured I'd share some joy. Now only if I could start writing for it. It is planned for the weekend.

I hope I will manage to actually do some writing instead of rewatching Beach Boys, all because Rin posted the opening (that you need to watch!!!) and made me want to. Really. I so do not need to stare at pretty 90's styled boys in tinted sunglasses searching for oceans right now ;__; By which I mean to say, someone else needs to get hooked!



!!Now the real reason I am posting. I finished my RyoDa Fic List of Doom. If you are craving a RyoDa fic, it is probably waiting for you to find it on that list. Head this way because it is posted out of order, but I though some of you on my flist might silently appreciate its existence <3

Tomorrow is FRIDAY! All of you, I hope you have a good one!
higure: ((Arashi) Jun číro)
eyesI think I actually had a post planned for tonight, but now I don't remember what it was about.

!!Sign ups for [livejournal.com profile] je_devilorangel close tonight if you are still wavering ;D The turn out so far is great.

kiddingI remembered one thing! I have new friends *____* welcome! There's an intro post though you probably already knew that if you wanted to know. To the future wine!

NGIn flash news, the company I interviewed with this week didn't let me know yet, and it may mean they have chosen someone else and won't even let me know. All in all, given how big of a rush they've been in, it is very likely that I am out, so that is what I am expecting if they DO let me know.

moneybagI spent most of today shopping or more like getting myself to the mall and back from it. The ride was actually beautiful and the bus took a road I've never took before. I didn't even mind it was a 40 minutes long ride with a stop on every corner. At the mall, I gave myself a headache in the second clothes store and I have not found shoes yet again. But I have one new shirt and new jeans since the old ones fell apart. I don't wear jeans that often anymore, given I don't wear casual stuff like that to work, but yeah they were needed. The tax refund came at the right time.

cakeI've been mostly bumming around since I came home, and I don't plan on doing much else than finishing Arashi Scene concert today. (I know I am an awful fan for taking this long to watch, but it is long and shiny and distracting so I can't watch it and do something else at the same time. BUT what I saw yesterday is AWESOME, and I do not get why I was on such an arashi diet up till now.) And so I am snatching a meme from [livejournal.com profile] ryogrande that looks fun and less lethal than asking for quick drabble prompts, an idea that crossed my mind briefly. (I have fics to write, you guys, I know, I am so glad this came around)

Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:

A) My OTP
B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular/fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why.


heart1Let's have some fun!

riceOh, I'm making curry rice tomorrow, but I don't have the instant curry cubes, so technically I am making t from the scratch. I have a curry paste and I have the curry spice (and have yet to decide how exactly I am doing this), so if you have an advice for me, I will gladly read some ;D
higure: ((Kat-tun) Maru: they say I´m crazy)
LOL so talking about the castle from two weeks ago is so last week, literally that is seems i never will. Oh well I’ll tell you about naked medieval bottoms and clever Czechs some other time.

Anyway I am posting to say some things. First, I saw a picture of onigiri this week, felt like eating some and randomly typed into my sister’s IM box “Come make me onigiri,” and she seriously did. From another city, this weekend. heart1heart1heart1She came bearing miso and wakame and we got tofu and found umeboshi paste and suddenly there was also a bit of sushi and what ended up being food orgy. I finished the miso soup today, and I’m having onogiri for lunch tomorrow :DDD

We ended up just bumping around and skyping with Rin and it was fun <3 They might have plotted out my FQF for me too, those two. ROFL.

In fandom news, [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith is done posting! Reading people’s reactions to fics, it seems that it’s been a great year. I am sending you to read what you haven’t. I myself am stuck on day three I think ;__; but I will get there, damn it!

Anyway, thank you to anyone who had to deal with my modly crankiness and insecurity. Guys, I had 3 fics in on March 15th (which was the second deadline already), so how the hell it happened that we did not need a pinch hit is beyond me, but I call that DAISEEEEKOOOO (yes that is stupid fangirl Japanese , sue me).

Because we barely just finished one exchange and tons of others are running, it is time for


Devil or Angel.

The JE collaboration fic challenge.


GO SIGN UP ... on April 1st when the sign ups open. Really, there is no pairing, rating, group or universe limitation, it’s just you, your partner and vast possibilities AND the twist that is incorporating a color into the fic. We dropped the themes, but we wanted to give you at least something extra to make it interesting. Details are in the intro post, so grab someone and write something you would never write alone.

I kind of wanted this photo to end this post, so. My sister painted her nails while she was here, with the same nail polish as me. We were originally going to document that fact, but because I am cheesy and she was spamming me Kpop, this is how it ended up. At least you can see our thumbs?



Guess which hand is mine;D You can also try and guess which fic I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith. Rin would probably say it is obvious just from the header itself >.>

And now I am really going to go be productive.
higure: ((Arashi) Do it! Do it!)
So, my [livejournal.com profile] fic_the_faith fic is AMAZING! It's Maruda, an established one at that. Has some aweosme stuff, some really hilarious stuff, some breath taking stuff and some really really hot stuff. I like together fics but I love established equally as much, damn it, because that dynamic different and leaves me feeling really comfortable. So this was a very nice bonus. LOL this might be as long as my comment on it, and I fully intent to redeem that this weekend, but I needed to get it out again. I flailed just thinking about the fic today in the bus on my way to work. I was going to say I must have gotten really lucky with who wrote for me this year then I remembered I was there when matching people up. LOL. Good job me. (okay this might have sounded weird.)

I almost forgot to link the fic, so it is here

Anyway I've read a couple of fics posted so far just now and they are all amazing, so I am really happy. BUT it got me thinking. I want your opinion. Do you think 4 fics a day, 5 days of posting is a good solution? As in do you think maybe the posting should go slower?

I'm asking because this being a one group exchange, maybe I should reconsider the system for the future. I know people all like different stuff, so they may pick and chose, but I usually make exceptions for exchanges and venture even into pairings I would not read otherwise. Also people in this exchange have been amazing in mostly including the rest of the group so that is A LOT of KAT-TUN in quite intense doses. Not to mention there is several fics going well over 10k.

I know people get anxious about their fic, want the fics for them and things may feel like dragging if posting goes for too long, but maybe idek 6 or 7 days for 20 fics would be better. 3 fics a day? Would it make a difference? Would you read more, feel less overwhelmed if that happened. Tell me in comments. I would really appreciate it.

For the lazy people I have a poll.
